Postdoctoral position in medicinal chemistry for drug discovery in death receptor signaling

We are seeking a talented and enthusiastic researcher with expertise in medicinal chemistry and chemical biology to advance drug discovery efforts and investigations on death receptor signaling and physiology in cancer and neuronal cells. The research entails medicinal chemistry studies on small molecules targeting the p75NTR death receptor identified in our ongoing screens, with the objective to improve the pharmacokinetic and biological properties of chemical leads. Please see Goh et al. (2018) Cell Chemical Biology 25, 1485–1494 for a representative publication of this work.

Candidates will be accepted at the postdoctoral level with a PhD awarded within the last 3 years. Strong and documented expertise in medicinal chemistry and chemical biology is a requirement for consideration. The successful candidate is expected to be sufficiently independent to formulate questions, design experiments and perform research. Excellent command of the English language is reuqired.

Applications, including CV (no diploma copies needed at this time please), list of publications and statement of research interests should be sent vey email to Prof. Carlos Ibanez (carlos [dot] ibanez [at] ki [dot] se) and through the job web page of Karolinska Institute. Applicants should arrange to have at least two confidential letters of reference sent independently by referees to this email address. Funding is available for an initial period of 3 to 4 years.

Deadline for application is 20 September 2019.

Open Postdoctoral Position: Molecular / Cellular Neurobiologists

We are seeking talented and enthusiastic researchers with expertise in molecular and cellular neuroscience to advance investigations on the functions and mechanisms of growth factor receptor signaling and physiology in the nervous system. The research entails studies of different receptor systems in neuronal and nervous system function using molecular methods, cell culture models and mutant mice carrying specific mutations in these receptors.

Candidates will be accepted at the postdoctoral level with a PhD awarded preferably within the last 3 years. Strong and documented expertise in molecular, cellular and histological methods of analysis as applied to studies of mouse models in the area of neuroscience is an absolute requirement for consideration. Successful applicants shall be well versed in mouse brain neuroanatomy and physiology. Expertise in analysis of mouse behavior will be an additional advantage. The successful candidate is expected to be sufficiently independent to formulate questions, design experiments and perform research. For more information and publications, please look HERE in our lab website.

Applications, including CV, list of publications and statement of research interests should be sent through the job web page of Karolinska Institute: Applicants should arrange to have at least two confidential letters of reference sent independently by referees to that email address.

Deadline for application is 15 September 2019.
